"Sherry, A rocket stove is best for sticks and split wood fuel. A TLUD requires small very dry chunks of biomass  (no bigger than ping pong ball size). Briquettes are an in between fuel best burned in a stove designed for them,…"

"Thank you for your response. The soap from Nubian Heritage looks very nice, but what the video talks about is inexpensive single use packets with four doses in the shape of a butterfly. The video also talks about pricing it so the average Haitian…"

"On the video it looked like the TLUD stoves can use twigs for burning. Are the TLUD stoves being made in Haiti right now?  I was thinking of vetiver briquettes eventually after the widowage is established. Are the briquettes not dense enough? I…"

Cookstoves for Haiti?

I see information about the Rocket stoves and the TLUD stoves. Which is the most fuel efficient? Which stove would work the best for vetiver grass briquettes? I assume the advantage of the Rocket stoves is the ability to use wood pieces fed through the front of the stove.Can both stoves be used indoors? Can both stoves be used to heat an oven? I saw the video "Vetiver grass & clean cookstoves importance in Haiti". What type of stove was used?See More

Good day,
I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(mrs.bawuahabiola147@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mrs.Abiola Bawuah
